Quote:
Breitbart News reported the most recent numbers–those for 2017–on September 26, 2018. Those figures showed that 467 people were killed with “blunt objects (hammers, clubs, etc.),” while 403 were killed with rifles.

And it must be noted that the category of “rifles” used by the FBI includes bolt action, pump action, single shot, and semi-automatic, as well as those the left describes as “assault weapons.” This means only a percentage of the 403 deaths attributed to “rifles” would have been carried out with an “assault weapon.” So the gap between the number of persons beaten to death with hammers and clubs verses those killed with “assault weapons” would be even greater than the gap between those who died in a hammer/club attack versus those who died being shot with “rifles” of any kind.

Come on left, wake up!! It's time you realize that you are wrong

Breitbart is a propaganda house. Why would I believe them about anything?

The source is FBI stats. Did you miss that? Or are you just living your truth and ignoring the facts?

Why not just give us the FBI link then? Breitbart's not getting web hits from me.

Thanks Frank DeForrest.

I wonder what they mean by "Other guns or type not stated"? That stat is almost half the total of the handguns.

Its just a guess, but it could be a firearm the type of which wasn't specified in the report. So pistol, rifle, shotgun, only the triggerman and cadaver knows.

No. Suicide is not homicide.

I don't suppose it occurred to you that hammers are cheap, and more people have them, so not surprising if more people use them violently? Even I have hammers.
